Donating blood is fairly a hassle-free, simple, and safe procedure. But certain checklists you need to follow before donating blood to reduce the risk of any complication. Note them!
Drink plenty of water. Hydration is the key! But drinking too much water just before donating blood may shoot up blood pressure. If you are donating plasma or platelet, drink at least 6-8 glasses of water 3 hours before blood donation.
Do not donate blood on an empty stomach. Eating healthy maintains blood sugar levels, helping you to feel better after you have donated blood.
Get plenty of sleep before and after you donate blood. Sufficient sleep accelerates recovery and wards off tiredness and light headedness.
Do not smoke or consume alcohol at least 48hr before donation.
Avoid heavy weightlifting or exertional physical activities.
